I really enjoyed this. In 1950 Buster was just sinking in to his big comeback. I wasn't aware of this show, so it is so nice that even one episode was preserved. After being misunderstood and under-appreciated for a while, here he is back in fine physical comedy form, doing the kind of humor he does best. Listen to the audience laugh. His solo scenes in the gym, shooting baskets and goofing around show that he still has that amazing athletic ability and, at about 55 years old, is still taking the falls and bending like a pretzel. I could watch him improvising in that gym all day.
